Page to gather information about the intended deprecation of net-tools.

Take into account that the interfaces provided by net-tools, to some extent are the portable ones across OSes to configure and handle some network stuff. If net-tools is considered deprecated on GNU/Linux, please do not just remove the support as that will break GNU/kFreeBSD for example which is using the compatible freebsd-net-tools, or GNU/Hurd which can use the partial support from inetutils-tools.

Nice page with iproute equivalences for every net-tools use:
